Building Upon The Principles Of Limited-Pitch Collections And Expanding And Contracting Motivic Figures, As Established In Such Works As Music In Similar Motion And Music In Contrary Motion, Music With Changing Parts Added A Number Of New Textural And Timbral Effects To This Spartan And Highly Focused Set Of Musical Resources. These Proved Crucial To Glass' Later Sound, As He Would Gradually Move Away From The Emotional Austerity And Procedural Strictness Of Early Minimalism Toward A More Expressive Style. Perhaps The Most Striking Aspect Of The Work Is The Bifurcation Of The Texture Into Multiple Rhythmic Layers. As The Piece Passes Through Various Pitch Configurations And Rhythmic Structures, The Improvised Elements Play An Increasingly Prominent Role Until The End Of The Work, When The Expanding And Contracting Melodic Figurations Finally Cede To A Swath Of Sustained Tones.” Jerremy Grimshaw, AMG.
